SERVICE CHARGE / GROUND RENT

HOW DOES OWNERSHIP WORK
It is designed for people who normally would not be able to get on the housing ladder. It reduces the cost of buying a property by the purchaser taking a share of the property, normally a percentage; say 50% or 75% which is shared with a housing association or other body. For Shared Ownership the purchaser then pays a rent to the housing association for the other remaining percentage. The vendor has advised the rent for this property on a 50% shared ownership basis (i.e. for the housing associations' 50%) is 150.00 pcm for 2015/16 (75.00 for 75%).

CAN I BUY MORE?
Normal purchases consist of 50% or 75% on a shared ownership basis. Further shares may be purchased 12 months later.

The housing association insists on the following criteria...

a) you cannot be a home owner
b) you must live or work in the local area
d) must not currently own a property
